Child having bruise, white lump on leg. What could this be?

Hi, my 5 year old daughter has a bruise on her leg that I noticed on Sunday evening. It is round, about the size of a mini-donut. In the center, there is a white lump. She says that she didn t hit her leg or run into anything. I would imagine that she would remember hurting herself in order to get a bruise like this. It doesn t hurt for her to walk on it, but she says it does hurt a little when I gently press on the lump. I am also surprised that the bump and the colour of the bruise has not diminished at all since Sunday.

Some times it may be because of some insect bite. If it is increasing in size and having any alterations in color and contour or not decreasing consult your doctor for examination and medication.
